TARIFF BILL PASSES SENATE.
Democrats Presented Solid Front- |
Final Vote on Measure 44 to 87.
Washington, Sept. 9.-Tho Demo- 1
eratic tariff revision hill passed the j
Senate at 5.43 o'clock this afternoon
amid a burst of applause that swept
down from crowded galleries and
found its echo on the crowded floor
of the Senate.
Its passage was attended with sur
prises in the final moments of the
coting, when Senator La Follette, Re- i
publican, cast his vote with the Dem- j
ocrats, and was joined a few mo- |
menta later by Senator Poindexter,.,
The Democrats had counted
throughout the long tariff fight upon
losing the votes of Senators Ransdell
and Thornton, of Louisiana, Demo
crats, who voted against the bill *o
day because it would put sugar ou
the free list.
Until the names of Senators La
Follette and Poindexter were actually '
called, however, no ono knew defi
nitely tho stand they would take, ind :
their votes were greeted with enthu- !
The vote was 4 4 to 37 i' favor of

the hill through the finance commit
tee, the Democratic caucus and the
Senate, predicted that Its passage I
would bring immediate stimulus to ?
